HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, September 6, 2011 1 HOMELIVING Enjoy time outdoors. INSIDE IDEAL IDEAS Season's hot buys GET GARDENING Time to make the garden grow COLOUR YOUR WORLD Making the most of paint TOPPING IT OFF Choosing the right roof Take a seat outdoors JANITA SINGH It's time to relax in the warmth of spring. Spring has sprung and the garden is calling out for your attention. Once upon a time, gardening was a serious business and often involved large quantities of compost and manure. It's still a serious business for many of us, but while manure and compost are generally much appreciated by the plant inhabitants, your garden is also likely to be shared by your family, friends and perhaps even a pet or two. We've all heard about bringing the outdoors in and the indoors out and there are any number of ways to do that, whether it's building an outdoor entertainment area, putting in some pretty plants, or dragging a comfy chair outside and sitting under a tree. One of the simplest ways to create an inviting outdoor living area is to plant some large pots with hardy succulents or foliage plants. A few large pots rather than lots of small ones usually looks best. Make sure the potting mix is good quality and you choose plants that will tolerate living in a confined space. Then start thinking outdoor furniture. Make sure it's comfortable and suits the style of your home and garden. Add a few cushions and a throw rug -- after all it's only spring -- and head on outdoors with some friends to make the most of the sunshine. 1300 364 290 Vis i t our Showr oom 361 Pennant Hills Road Pennant Hills NSW 2120 CORNER OF GEORGE STREET OR www.pergolaland.com.au Call Us to arrange a booking with one of our experienced Design Consultants OPEN 7 DAYS: MON - FRI 8:30 - 4:30 SATURDAY 8:30 - 4:00 SUNDAY 10:30 - 4:00 PERGOLAS DECKS OPENING ROOFS CARPORTS The Trusted Outdoor Additions Specialist HIA MASTERBUILDERS ASSOCIATION AUSTRALIA NEWSO U TH WALES LIBER TY PR OC ESS STAB ILITY FIRST INCORPORATED 1873 Master Builders Association Builders Licence: 93536C HIA Gold Member On custom Shutters, Blinds, Curtains & Awnings Free Installation 131913 accentblinds.com.au Improve your home AND save money Alexandria .
